9780312217600: Invisible Work, Invisible Workers: The Informal Economy in Europe and the US

This useful overview of the literature on the informal economy highlights contemporary changes in the world of work and employment by exploring the importance of the informal economy in Western Europe and the United States. Examining how peripheral groups such as ethnic minorities are drawn into the labor market, the book looks at the various ways in which individuals, households and communities turn to informal economic activities in order to achieve some level of economic security in precarious economic environments. Madeleine Leonard illustrates the continued ambiguous nature of work and the ever changing boundaries between formal and informal economic activity.
